Attend the March Madness online festival
Are you ready for March Madness?
March Madness is a free to attend music festival taking place this Spring Equinox on the 20th March 2021. The online festival will feature an array of disabled and non-disabled music artists, thought leaders, comedians and poets.
With self-isolating, shielding measures and the cancellation of festivals, the charity ‘Festival Spirit’ have decided to bring the festival spirit into peoples' homes. The event is free for all to attend and tickets are now available from here.
More about the festival
The first batch of performers and artists have now been confirmed. Acts range from the rapper Kray-Z Legz to the Olympic gold medallist Greg Searle MBE.
On the first day of Spring, March Madness will provide the full festival experience and a little something for everyone. The festival will feature rap music, dance music, rock, classical, comedy, poetry and inspirational talks. There will even be events dubbed 'conversations around the campfire'. These discussions will take advantage of breakout streaming technologies and will be led by artists.
The festival organiser said:
“For the last 10 years our charity Festival Spirit has helped bring people to music festivals who otherwise would not be able to attend. We provide weekend accommodation in a beautiful tent and facilitate people attending by providing hospital profile beds, electric hoists and a range of other special equipment. We even heat the tent to keep us all cosy! People have a great time and make lots of new friends. March Madness was born out of the idea of recreating that special atmosphere, we call the festival spirit, we experience at each festival."
